Swine Flu - It's Here!!

At first when we all heard of the Swine Flu (H1N1) the news had us in hysteria, than we were calmed down to no worries, well I am here to say the swine flu is here and spreading. Thank goodness it is a mild version of what had been hitting the world and if caught early can be treated with anti-viral meds.

But we also need to be wise, if you have ANY symptoms STAY HOME!! Wash your hands; cover your mouth when you cough. Simple. I don’t think I am too keen on the vaccination (pushed through too fast), I say be wise.

Our exposure came from one the girls’ friend at school, and with closeness while dancing ballroom, it spread. After we got the positive diagnosis they made the decision to treat the whole family which was a very good idea since it than passed to me and Lindsay, than to the boys. So far Donny has been the only one symptom free. The kids have been going a little crazy with our 5-7 day quarantine. But we are on the mend.

This is what anti-viral meds look like for 6 children + Mom & Dad.
